On This Day In Baseball History: August 25, 2013

Bryce Harper

 

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper hits his 40 career homer off of the Royals Ervin Santana. The homer makes Bryce only the third player in history to collect 40 homers before his 21st birthday joining Mel Ott and Tony Conigliaro. Harper made his Major League debut as a 19 year old and would log over 250 games and 42 homers before he turns 21.
